The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 43 years (1973 - 2016) with a 1928 Chevrolet tourer, affectionately called "The Red Chev".

The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.

Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

If you have the time, scroll back to where it all began in 1973 and follow the journey so far.

Thanks for dropping by.

Regards Ray Dean

1926 Chev Owner In Switzerland needing Help

I received the following email this morning.........

Dear Mr Dean

I am an owner of a Chevrolet tourer from 1926.

Some part of the engine went lost a decade ago. Im now trying to figure out how to bring back to old glory this car.

I live in Switzerland, and I didn’t find any support in Europe regarding my problem.

Do you have a piece of suggestion about where a may find the missing parts or even a whole overhauled engine?

Best regards

Fabrizio Verga=

Later in the Morning Fabrizio sent me the following pictures of his nice looking 1926 Chev

These are the parts Fabrizio is looking for, and if anyone has any contacts in Switzerland or Europe please let me know as I would love to help him to get this baby back on the road.

-8 push rods
-8valve lifters

-crankshaft gear
